Pole Dancing for Fitness - Back Hook Closed - as part of the fitness series by GeoBeats.
We are going to do a back hook closed. We are going to take our inside leg, bring it around the pole, have our hands nice and high up the pole. Sitting backwards, leading with the bottom, we are going to bring the other leg, and have it be right next to the top leg. So, from here, pushing off, wrapping, and coming down onto the side. We are going to come back onto the elbows. That top leg's going to come out into our stand. We bring 1 foot, other foot, come onto the knees, face your pole. Stand up, 1 foot, other foot. Bottoms up, chest up.
Let us do that again. Go ahead and have your inside leg around the pole, outside hand across the pole. Push off with the standing leg. Lead back with the bottom. From here come back onto the elbows or the hands. Top leg around, little fan. Come onto the knees, and then turn to face the pole, 1 foot, other foot. Bottoms up, chest up. And that is a back hook closed.
